This is my favourite restaurant in Saint John. Lovely and accommodating staff and the ambience suits any occasion. The portions are just enough and tastefully presented and prepared and you have room for dessert!

Don't get to eat out in my home town much. I wanted to try this place after the change in ownership. Well, I am glad I did. Food was great and well presented. Service was adequate. Could use some improvement there. Atmosphere was noisy and lacked charm. Needs to be improved. Also, dividers between tables would be appreciated. Over all... More

We stopped in for a Saturday afternoon snack and enjoyed a bowl of soup and shared the cauliflower tempura and the ECB snackboard. Everything was so tasty! The service was very good too. Highly recommend. It looks like they are a very popular spot in the evening, and we saw the staff preparing for their supper time guests

Atmosphere not the greatest but food was excellent. My wife and I ordered the poutine and cauliflower tempura for starters, poutine wasn't good at all, fries were like McCain frozen shoestring and gravy was tasteless. Cauliflower tempura was amazing though. Red curry seafood and brined chicken for our mains, both were excellent and extremely flavourful. Highly recommend this place just... More

I have to say that this just might be the best restaurant in the province let alone Saint John,NB. I have had many dishes- a rack of lamb cooked to perfection - beautiful ravioli - and their soups are gorgeous. Compared to many other restaurants local to Saint John you won't get better food at their reasonable prices.
